The Heretics’ Revenge (Bargain Book)

Condemned as heretics by the Catholic Church, the 13th-century Cathars are persecuted, tortured, and finally burned alive at Montségur. But according to legend they hide their riches and relic beyond the castle walls on the eve of their demise.
In the 1930s, Otto Rahn dedicates his life to recovering the long forgotten relic, and coerced by Himmler joins the SS to find the ‘Holy Grail’ for the Nazis. Exposed as both Jewish and homosexual, Rahn commits suicide. But not before he entrusts his notes to his niece. Notes that have never been found.
Seeking a challenge after retiring early, businessman Steve Jackson embarks on a modern-day search for the fabled Cathar cache. With French girlfriend, Manon Lubin, they locate Rahn’s abandoned clues in the Black Forest. The notes become a key to locating a religious discovery even greater than the Dead Sea Scrolls, and unleash a 750-year old time-capsule of revenge that threatens to shake the Church of Rome to its foundations. 
The massacre of the Cathars and the true story of Otto Rahn are interweaved and then continued with the fictional search for the treasure and relic. Rich in historical detail, this fascinating and absorbing story, set in France and London, climaxes with a thought-provoking and controversial conclusion that brings The Heretics’ Revenge.

After reading about the treasure of Montsegur it was apparent that no one had written a complete account of events, and more particularly no one had imagined whether the treasure and relic could be located today. Even more importantly just what might that turn out to be? I was intrigued enough to make several research trips to Montsegur, Berlin, and other places. The result is a story with a mix of robust history and a very plausible religion-changing discovery.

A must read book to understand current events.

Arthur White takes us through the mechanisms of propaganda and indoctrination from the past and used in today’s social media. Sometimes reality is far more terrifying than fiction.

Arthur White gives a daring look to how freedom is stripped away. A society indoctrinated since birth, a world of fashionable morals.

Arthur White guides us through the tools used in everyday life to deceive mankind, divide and keep people in an invisible prison.

The magic trick is not stripping away free will from society. The real magic trick is doing it in a way that people willingly surrender free will and they do it with a big smile.

Winter’s Child: a novel

cover

BURIAL RITES meets THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO in the world of the Italian Renaissance.

Set against the colorful backdrop of 15th century Florence, RJ Hervey tells the stunning tale of Amadora Trovatelli, a workshop apprentice who, after miraculously escaping from a horrific fire, swears to kill the nobleman who took everything from her.

With nothing but her harp, Amadora dives headfirst into the charged political landscape of Florence. Caught with the Medici on one side, the Salviati on the other, and the constant reminder that higher powers are in control of her destiny, she uses her mastery of music to maneuver ever closer to her goal. Meanwhile, she must escape notice of the inquisition, who have named her a witch for surviving the fire she can’t remember escaping.

And all the while, she’s carrying the child of the man she has sworn to kill.

WINTER’S CHILD is an evocative new style of historical fiction, brimming with rich language, emotional turns, and a view of the Italian Renaissance you won’t soon forget.
